It's an old desk top that is seriously slow. Probably malware/virus/spyware, etc.
Do you guys know of any cheap or free software that I can download or purchase to help out.
She is about to drive me crazy with it.

gotta say just because you make her, and you, sound ignorant about computers...
when is the last time a disc cleanup and disc defragment were done? those help a lot, and if she is using the machine heavily they should be done regularly.

I am going to get all up on that thing this afternoon.
Good news is, I will be getting a blow job while taking your advice.

If I come over and fix the computer, will she give me a bj?

Pick me .. i'll do it for a handy!

I don't want a bj or a handjob from you.

This. Before you do any of the malware stuff.
After, I agree with those that said download AVG and perhaps adware as well. They are both free, and will block most malware and viruses. As long as you are not using your pc for business, ie its not critical, that should be sufficient.

if it's an old computer it's nearly guaranteed that it has malware. Malwarebyte's program isn't complicated like Hijack this or anything, he won't mess anything up. Thinking about what the average person uses their computer for when they find it's performance lacking it's usually from the everyday tasks that the hard drive doesn't really involve. The CPU and Memory are probably being pushed to the limit. That's probably from malware.

After having looked into all of the aforementioned products I installed Microsoft Security Essentials on our 40+ corporate laptops and haven't had a problem since.
Its free & reasonably highly rated - well except for the haters who would bitch about it if M$ invented Star Trek like teleporters.
